Preliminary results have shown that low temperature eddy current sensors can provide excellent resolution for blade tip timing, and have the ability to see ?through the case? of an engine and measure blade passings, without having to drill into the case material or subject the sensor to the harsh environment of the gas flow. What is needed is a rugged, high resolution sensor that can be used for applications up to turbine temperatures, and that can easily overcome issues of velocity dependent calibration, low pass filtering through cases, varying case materials and thicknesses, high temperature, and limited standoff distances. Eddy current is the only technology that can provide the solution to these problems, and at the same time operate in dirty environments (oil, steam, etc.) This SBIR plans to develop an eddy current sensor technology that can be used at turbine temperatures, be mounted outside the engine case, work in hostile environments and provide Generation 4 resolution for Non-Intrusive Stress Measurements (NSMS) of turbine blades.
